Buena Vista chalet description

We invite you to join the many guests who have learned about our cabin 'by word of mouth' and have returned year after year-- calling it Buena Vista's best kept secret.

Nestled among the pine and aspen on the side of Mt. Princeton, our property is bordered by a picturesque creek perfect for playing in and listening to as you drift off to sleep.

The homey decor includes many personal touches reflecting our family history. The furnishings, linens, bedding and dishes are tastefully coordinated and meticulously maintained.

Our location, set among the Collegiate Peaks (14,000 ft mountains), overlooks the Arkansas River Valley and offers both a myriad of recreational opportunities and the quiet seclusion of a mountainside retreat.

Additional photos of the interior and exterior are available upon request.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1971

                  About the owner: Originally built as a respite from our busy professional lives in Illinois, the cabin has served to bring extended family together from locations across the US. We are delighted to see the third generation of our family loving this part of God's county as much as we do. By renting other nearby cabins we have been able to host family reunions here.

                  Why the Owner Chose Buena Vista:
                  We built this home after falling in love with the area following several family vacations. Now entering our fifth decade in the valley, we are pleased to share our extensive knowledge of recreational opportunities with you. A complete scrapbook in the cabin is dedicated to favorite hikes and attractions.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                  Quiet, end of the road location with a rushing creek, playground for children and majestic views.
